We now have a tag for fan reports! I collected everyone’s personal experiences of going to see Nakata at his club events, including setlists posted by Japanese blogs for other live events (such as capsule at ROCK IN JAPAN FES), and put them in one place. I really do enjoy when people talk about their individual stories, so please don’t hesitate to message me about your experiences. Also as a reminder, there’s a tag for all fan-related creations called fan stuff that includes the aforementioned reports as well as music creations and artwork.
Arguably more musicians need to do this (presentations). Lack of transparency in that sense is sort of an irritating thing with electronic musicians, I think it’s just not in the culture to do that kind of postmortem. Also when is the whispering?
During the verses, she’s just whispering back each vocal line as a sort of tiny echo. It’s very faint but my brain fixated on it out of nowhere for whatever reason.
If you listen closely to I’m Feeling You, you’ll hear Toshiko whispering really quietly in the right channel of your headphones
Nakata really needs to do a presentation where he deconstructs one of his songs or something, this is level of attention to detail has been ridiculous
Petition for a Perfume acoustic album contributed to by several musicians
Nakata can do an all-piano version of Polyrhythm in it or something idk man
Surprised nobody pointed this out yet, but Perfume and MEG seem to have had photoshoots at the exact same location this year!

My night started walking all the way from Shinjuku to Daikanyama, it took me like 1 hour 30 minutes or more, even though I worked all day I wasn’t tired. Lately I enjoy taking this loooong walks in Tokyo at night alone. I stopped at Jonathan’s to eat something and charge my phone.
